Gagarin ‘Shturmanskie’ tribute based on 1956 1MWF Sportivnie watch $60

A 1MWF Sportivnie watch made in 1st quarter 1956, fitted with a modern silvered Shturmanskie style dial, to resemble the watch Gagarin wore for the first space flight.

You get the best of both worlds: the hacking, handwind period Sportivnie watch, with a good looking modern dial.

The movement is clean, well finished (typical of 50s Soviet watches!) and accurate.

Case is chromed base metal, with a stainless steel back. As you’d expect of a 60yr old watch, there is some light chrome loss on lugs and case sides
32mm diameter, 41mm lug to lug, 16mm lugs. The watch is presented on a tan Hirsch Camelgrain strap
